1968 Pontiac GTO Engine Idle Car Craft Magazine
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1968-pontiac-gto/ to see this amazing
1968 Pontiac GTO from Sunset Classics. This fabulous Vedora Green machine
wowed 'em at the Muscle Car Classic with an impressive first place win. She
sports a wicked Pontiac 406ci V-8 Engine that kicks out an impressive
330HP. A Numbers matching very very rare 3:55 gear "N"case 4 pinion posi
rear end. And so much more fun stuff I get the chills just thinking about
all that high performance fun.
This great GTO was featured in Car Craft magazine in 2003 (Dyno Proven engine combos). At
that time it was Dyno'd at 313HP with 362lb-ft.
Since then it has been fine tuned to even better performance.
Check out the configuration and two photo galleries of this fine GTO here:

Sehr Performance Machine / Ryan's 350 Pontiac
Ryan dropped off his 350 Pontiac long block along with a set of 400 Pontiac
Ram Air cylinder heads, an Edelbrock intake and his Holley carb. He wanted
us to put it together for his '69 Firebird. His engine came to us with
blow-by issues from a broken piston. First off the cylinders had to be
relieved to clear the valves on the Ram Air heads. The heads were milled
to reduce chamber size and valve to block clearance was checked one more
time. All of his parts were inspected and magnafluxed to be sure we were
starting off with serviceable parts and the clearances were brought back to
low side of factory tolerances, a new custom COMP cam and a distributor
curve kit were added along with some other touches, the engine was painted
Pontiac Blue and bolted to our Dyno. Ryan is very happy with
the end results and is looking forward to getting it back in his car and
having some fun with it.
